What should have been a 2 hour drive to the campground was over 4 hours today. We were towing our travel trailer into a steady 30+ mile an hour head/cross wind. We were getting blown all over and got about 6 mpg. The EcoBeast spent most of the time in 4th gear despite my many attempts to get it to hold 6th like usual when I tow. It got so bad I finally got off the expressway and took back country highways. My milage jumped up to about 10mpg but we had to take it slow. Once off the e-way I could hold 6th gear again since the wind direction was hitting us at a little better angle. The sway control on my hitch did a pretty good job of bringing everything back in line after a gust, and the trucks electronic sway control never kicked in that I know of. I love this truck, but it sure wasn't any fun to drive today.
